I am have been trying to fix my PC Desktop's TCP/IP Connection problems and I am unsure on where to go next.
Yesterday afternoon, my PC Desktop stopped responding to the internet. I believe this may have been due to a corruption of the TCP/IP settings. I am still able to access the intener via my laptop's wireless connection. This alone lets me know that my DSL modem connection is working okay.
This morning I reformatted my hard drive since I was planning on doing so anyway. After re-installing Windows XP, I am still unable to access the inernet through my desktop. I installed my ethernet drivers (and yes my ethernet cable is connected). Any suggestions or something I am missing in the setup?
James- I am trying the program now. I will post the results.
D@ve- I did try another ethernet cable that I know works this morning and I received the same results. The only connection I have listed under "LAN or High Speed Internet" is a "1394 Connection/1394 Net Adapter" which is listed as connected and enabled. I am thinking I have to re-install something here but it escapes my memory on what.

This is your problem. The 1394 connection is referring to your firewire socket, not your ethernet port. It appears that your network card is not being recognised properly. You say that you have reinstalled the drivers but are you certain they are the correct ones? Have a look in device manager and see if there are any yellow exclamation marks listed against components, particularly under network adapters.
Also if it's a PCI network card, open the case and make sure that it is seated properly in the socket and has not come loose. If it is an onboard one, check in the BIOS that it has not been disabled.
